lyrics

I asked God for a good job
He put me on a plane
All of the people that I love
The people that I'm from
Are far away

I've been packing dirty clothes
Sleeping in my coat
Eating in the car
Living in a bar
Goodness, ain't that the way?

I asked God for a good man
But I forgot to say
"I wanna see him every day"
I try to remember that Goose Poop Pond
(Even with a swinging rope)
Is never as fresh as you hope

The neighbor baby in the mud
Getting dirty in the sun
The washing on a wire
Potatoes in a tire
Goodness, ain't that the way?

If you got honey in my mug
Liquor in your cupboard
Water on the stove
Sugar on the phone
Goodness, ain't that the way?

You're on your own
You're on the way home
New Ry Cooder on the radio
You're cooking for one
Watching an old video
And here in the distance
Here in the miss you
Fonder and fonder and fonder I grow
